Darkness At Noon For Richard Goldstone

Those fortunate enough to live in countries where questioning the Holocaust is not illegal will have noticed the irony of the stance Israel and her apologists seem pleased to take up in the aftermath of Judge Richard Goldstone’s recent groveling in the Washington Post (Reconsidering the Goldstone Report on Israel and war crimes Friday, April 1, 2011). Just as the Holocaust deniers argue that there is no documented line of command from Hitler himself to the WW2 atrocities against Jews, so Goldstone’s extremely limited concession:

While the investigations published by the Israeli military…have established the validity of some incidents that we investigated in cases involving individual soldiers, they also indicate that civilians were not intentionally targeted as a matter of policy.

This of course gives the green light for Israel’s defenders to happily claim that the Israeli Government was not responsible. Not, it should be noted that blood was not deliberately shed by Israeli soldiers. The historically-minded will see a difference between the proportion of German and Israeli High Command archives in the public domain.

Goldstone’s Breaking brings another historical parallel to mind: the Soviet Show Trials of the 1930s. These of course featured devastating confessions from the accused, often so absurd as to completely defy credibility. Many observers overseas were deeply puzzled by the extent of the reversals involved. The Goldstone charade chillingly echoes these events – for understandable reasons, as Kevin MacDonald has pointed out.

In his comment on Goldstone, Professor Macdonald drew attention to a Forward article Did a Private Meeting Prompt Goldstone To Change His Mind? By Larry Cohler-Esses, Gal Beckerman and Claudia Braude April 06, 2011. This is worth reading in full.

The article celebrates, in unashamedly enthusiastic terms, the mental torture inflicted on Goldstone on his return to his native South Africa last May. The Lubyanka managers would have been proud.

Conspicuously missing is any interest in the actual facts of Gaza. Instead the focus is entirely on the inconvenience created by the Goldstone Report for the Jews. We learn that a presentation by

Avrom Krengel, chairman of the South African Zionist Federation…seemed designed to puncture by turns both Goldstone’s intellectual defenses and his heart. Krengel and other board members told Goldstone his findings that Israeli soldiers had committed war crimes had made it impossible for young South African Jewish émigrés who served in the Israeli army to return home for visits.

“Goldstone said this was not supposed to affect them,” Krengel related. …“Your request that countries prosecute Israeli soldiers under universal jurisdiction principles will prevent thousands of Jews from visiting their parents and grandparents in certain countries and force their absence from family celebrations,” Krengel told Goldstone in his formal statement.

Gleefully, the story highlights a reason-defying contortion by Goldstone. The Israeli investigations upon which he based his assertion were secret:

Goldstone’s acceptance of these closed investigations by the Israeli military of itself represented a dramatic turnaround. In an in-depth interview with the Forward in October 2009, he explicitly rejected such probes as inherently flawed…. He offered the example of Israel’s investigation into the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacres by an independent panel appointed by Prime Minister Menachem Begin as a model to emulate. The call for an open and independent investigation was one he repeated at his May meeting in South Africa, citing this as “the first and primary” recommendation of his U.N. report.

Yet the core of his Washington Post “retraction” as noted above was his acceptance that

investigations published by the Israeli military… indicate that civilians were not intentionally targeted as a matter of policy.

There is no doubt what has gone on here. Leftist Jewish writer Letty Cottin Pogrebin explained it in The Un-Jewish Assault on Richard Goldstone Forward December 29, 2010:

There’s a Hebrew word for what these people did to Richard Goldstone: They put him in cherem, meaning he was not just persona non grata in the eyes of our religious arbiters, he was totally cut off from the Jewish community. From the moment the report was released, he was treated like a leper — shunned, defamed, disowned…

In April 2010, the South African Zionist Federation reportedly threatened demonstrations outside the Sandton Synagogue if he showed up at his grandson’s bar mitzvah… No less an authority than Rabbi Moshe Kurtstag, head of the local rabbinic court, endorsed the idea that Goldstone should simply stay away, calling it “quite a sensible thing to avert all this unpleasantness.”…

It would have been “good for the Jews” and for Israel had the report’s substance been frankly confronted and debated, however the only game in town is “Kill the message, trash the messenger.”

Pogrebin appears to have been completely silent since Goldstone capitulated.

Not so the U.S. Senate, which carefully stepped through the torture scene: U.S. Senate unanimously calls on U.N. to rescind Goldstone by Ray Kampeas JTA.org April 15, 2011

Perhaps, an aeon from now, historians might wonder why a compelled retraction on a narrow issue of causation compelled the American Senate to take such an extreme step…or maybe it will be obvious.

    Yes, the Zionists own them all. 100 out of 100. Soon enough, though, the dollars they own them with, and the Old Media they control them with, won’t be worth a thing. Then we’ll see. Historically, the higher the Jews rise, the harder they fall.

      Jewish power is not dependent on “systems”,it is dependent on their own presence.If the system collapses then the Jews will simply infiltrate the new system or create one of their own.See how after the collapse of the Soviet System the Jews became quickly immensly rich as “oligarchs”.The only way to get rid of Jewish power is to get rid of the Jews themselves.

      I don’t think getting “rid” of the Jews is the answer. There is no doubt that they want to get rid of White people, or at least any White people who are smart enough to challenge them–after all, there needs to be some industrious people working at Homeland Security.

      The problem is that if you extricate the Jewish grip from our system, the technology of the day enables the Jew to exert control from where ever they are. An increasingly interconnected world presents this conundrum.

    “See how after the collapse of the Soviet System the Jews became quickly immensly rich as “oligarchs”.”

    What happened was western institutions like the IMF and the US government sent “advisors” to help the Russians set up a market economy. Those western advisors were mostly Jews and they made sure Russian Jews got the bulk of the ex-government assets.

    .
    “The only way to get rid of Jewish power is to get rid of the Jews themselves.”

    And as the Russian experience shows no single country can do it alone because they are immediately under siege. It has to be all White countries.

      You are absolutely right,it is not only a national but also an international problem.If one country would liberate itself from Jewish power it would immediately be “punished” by other-more powerful- countries that the Jews control.This happened with Nazi-Germany,that was “punished” by a combination of the Soviet Union ,Britain and the USA-all controled by the Jews(Hitler was well aware of that fact).Should the whole West liberate itself from Jewish power (alas,very unlikely) then the Jews would move to India or China,infiltrate their power structure and use it to “punish” the West.
      Jews are only one quarter of one percent of the world’s population but they are a plague to the whole planet.Ineradicable,so it seems.

    The only country which the so-called ‘Holocaust deniers’ consider to practice ‘freedom of speech’ in the real sense – is Islamic Republic of Iran. In December 2006 – Iran became the first country to allow ‘Holocaust Conference’ in Tehran which was attended by over 33 scholars, historians, scientists and rabbis from many countries, mostly from the West.

    Having subordinated the Law of Moser, Goldstone was ostracized by Jewry until he affirmed the primacy of Talmudic law over secular judicial oaths

    …The Jewish encyclopedia defines “Moser” as follows:
    “An informer, denunciator, or delator; synonyms are “masor” (abstract, “mesirah”), “delator” (), and “malshin” (abstract, “malshinut”), from the last of which are derived the Portuguese “malsim,” and also the Spanish “malsin,” together with the adjective “malsinar” and the abstract nouns “malsindad” and “malsineria.”

    “Nothing was more severely punished by the Jews than talebearing; and no one was held in greater contempt than the informer. On account of the fact that his deeds frequently caused mischief and even entailed death and destruction, the sages of the Talmud compared the “moser” to a serpent.”

    Thus, in the mind of the Jewish Zionist community (remember, Zionism is a Talmudic, Jewish supremacist formulation), Goldstone had become the equivalent of a “serpent” — and had to be religously, socially and politically shunned and ostracized until broken.

    To Jewry, Goldstone stands as an example of how Jews who become mosers should be treated until death, or until they recant their testimony (no matter how objective, correct, accurate or honest) against fellow Jews.

    But how should non-Jews regard Goldstone and the Jewish Zionist milieu from which he came that compelled his de facto perjury and the betrayal of his official secular duties as a commissioned member of the U.N.?

    Goldstone today stands as an example of why Jewish Zionists should never be given any official authority in a secular society or body that subscribes or aspires to an impartial judicial or justice system; indeed, he also stands as an example why Jewish Zionists (who at their ideological core regard non-Jews as animals), should never be given any secular judicial or governmental authority over the fate of any non-Jews whatsoever, as any time a Jew’s interests come into conflict with those of a non-Jew, the Jew is commanded by the Law of Moser to side with his co-religionist…MORE

    On March 14, 2010 – the Timesonline under the heading, What a stag do: strippers, booze, Auschwitz, reported a new trend to promote Zionist narrative of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi camps in Poland. Two British companies, Lost Night of Freedom and Chillisauce are offering a trip to Poland for just 149 pounds per person to have the fun of his/her life while learning the Zionists’ holocaust narrative – “one million Jews died in those two camps”, period. And forget all about the Gypsies and the Christian inmates.

    According to the paper, the tourists are entertained with booze, lap dancers, paintballing, white-water rafting and firing a Kalashnikov. Paul Luke, content manager at Last Night of Freedom, which claims to be the world’s biggest travel agency for stag and hen weekends, told a journalist posing as a customer: “It is bizarre when you drop a visit to the most depressing place on Earth into a massively fun weekend, but it is life-affirming. People have told us they have had the best night out ever after they have been there, because it almost makes you think, ‘To hell with that, we have seen the worst humanity had to show and then gone out on a major night on the tiles with strippers and booze’.

    Zionists’ narrative not only refuses to accept a challenge to its “Six Million Died” tabulation but also forbids non-Jewish mass killing to be called “Halocaust”, such as 1.7 million German Christians murdered and starved to death after the D-Day by the Allied Forces and local Jewish gangs or 7 million Ukrainian Christians and over 60 million Russian Christians killed by the Communist-Jew alliance or 1.5 million Armenian killed by Crypto-Jew Turks or hundreds of thousands of Muslims killed in Bosnia, Chechynia and Philippines by the Christians or 2 million Iraqis killed as result of US wars and sanctions or 4 milliom victims of Bengali Femine and more than 5 million Palestinian made to live outside their ancestoral homeland by the foreign Jews occupying Palestine. Last year, Israeli Holocaust museum Yad Vashem had fired one of its guides, Itamar Shapira 29, for comparing Jewish Holocaust with Palestinian Nakba (The Catastrophe) in 1948……..

    “Nothing was more severely punished by the Jews than talebearing; and no one was held in greater contempt than the informer. On account of the fact that his deeds frequently caused mischief and even entailed death and destruction, the sages of the Talmud compared the “moser” to a serpent.”

    The Jews see that guy as a traitor and treat him accordingly. I wish we were more like that with white traitors. If we can act that way for the sake of Political Correctness surely we could do it in the case of race treason. But it takes a public criteria set for us by authority and that can only be done via the communications system. Obviously, the Jew’s instincts for survival are much stronger than ours.

    Gentiles (Nazis, or not) don’t carry out extermination programs. A holocaust is not a White thing. Surely, we understand ourselves well enough to know that. But Jews do. They are in the process of carrying out an extermination program of white people at this very moment. They don’t call it that, of course. They call it “diversity.”

    • April 21, 2011 - 12:35 am | Permalink

      The problem for Whites isn’t that they’re not enough like Jewry; the problem is they’ve become too MUCH like Jewry — materialism, ambition, and temporal luxuries at any cost to soul, community, country, Christianity…Zionist Jewry is where all of that ends — a siege and rat-like mentality.

      Emulating Jewry is a recipe for death, or worse, existence as a living, breathing, soulless, grasping, superficial walking corpse that imagines it’s “chosen.”

      Why else have American Whites become so pathetic? They’ve internalized and embraced Jewish reality, and are now in the stage of nihilistic, narcissistic contraction, and like Jewry, will eventually exist as mere ambitious grifters and parasites mooching off of functional civilizations unless they changer their Jew-like ways.

    Chris, I was not suggesting that we should be like the Jews in any manner except possessing strong instincts for racial preservation. No doubt, we are into creature comforts, but we – as a group – are not parasitic. Maybe, we are just trying to hang on to our own wealth.

    I still maintain we are in the grip of a Jewish extermination program. It’s a true holocaust without using gas ovens. That is probably the main reason Jews promote the holocaust of six million Jews – to prevent us from defending ourselves from their holocaust initiatives. And with our help. That is why pressure is put on us to believe we should approve of race-killing diversity. That is why we are condemned as hate filled bigots and racists if we oppose it. (If nothing else Jews are thorough in their extermination efforts.)

    All of them, Marx, Freud, Trotsky, the Frankfurt School devoted themselves to formulating this extermination program. “Hate” was the nucleus. As we can see Jewish media attack us from all sides with the “hate” word and related labels. We have not figured out how to transfer the hate back to them. Which puts us in the weaker position of always being on the defensive. If our leaders could figure out how to put the burden back on the Jews and go after them for using “hate” as an extermination initiative for destroying the White Race we might be on to something.

      @ Heather,

      I hear what you’re saying, but it’s not so much about reflecting the hate back as it is about seizing the moral authority.

      Jewry and Leftism used and exaggerated the Holocaust (and colonialism, which amounted to White tribalism institutionalized by self-serving White elites and Jews) to seize the moral authority.

      Zionism (Jewish supremacism, both Israeli and diaspora) was a partnership with leftism that elements of the left are now attempting to throw under the bus.

      Regardless, Zionism has and is destroying leftist and Zionist moral authority.

      Who will seize the moral authority in the developing vacuum? (Hint: it won’t be (particularistic) neo-Nazis or White supremacists.)

    Jewish communists took over Russia in 1919 and looted it for 70 years until there was nothing left to loot under the communist system.

    So they engineered the downfall of the communist system beginning with the 1970′s “save the persecuted Russian Jews crusade of Rabbi Kahane.”

    Once the communist system was overthrown, the Jews with the help of Jeffrey Sachs etc looted Russia all over again. They are still running Russia as the yhave since 1919.

    It is a good thing that a distinguished jurist like Richard Goldstone thinks Israel was within its rights to target the civilian infrastructure of Lebanon (killing non- combatants, including little children, in the process). The more punitive measures Israel takes the more intractable will be the alienation of Palestinians and the more likely the demographic dilemma they present to Israel’s future will require expulsions.

    Once the Israelis have crossed that Rubicon it will become thinkable for Europe. The political opposition to expulsions would be restricted to bleating white liberals and Jewish leftists.

    If it was not for the influx of Jews from the former Soviet Union Israel would already be seriously contemplating the expulsion of the Palestinians.

      Someday wants to emulate the Jews instead of alienating their bad example.

      Expulsion should be done with a razor, not a blunt instrument, and should be a function of fidelity and loyalty, not superficiality.

      Certain kinds of Whites must no doubt eventually be expelled from America along with their Jew intellectual forbears.
